3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle from Jumbo Alto Las Condes. Pours a hazy dark amber/bronze color with a medium grayish-white head that laces well. Strong, malty-fruity aroma, complex with notes of molasses, peaches, strawberries, Amaretto cream, cranberries, hay, buttery biscuit and lots of phenols. Big, overpowering and malty. Intensely sweet, syrupy but well-made. Big flavors of molasses, palm syrup, overripe peaches and liquor. Boozy and heavy. When it warms, the sweetness becomes overwhelming. The hops are barely noticeable. Huge body, thick in the mouth. Finish is long and leaves a warm and boozy sensation in the mouth. As much a Barley Wine as an English Strong Ale. Enjoyable yet a little too sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500mL bottle from Regionals. Pours a red/orange hue with a tan head which dissipates quickly.
A very sweet nose on this one. Lots of brown sugar like a barley wine but has some raisin fruitiness.
Flavour is quite complex. Initially sweet, along with some raisin. Sweetness is balanced mid way with a good bitterness. A very mouth filling beer, and there is a bit of spiciness right near the finish which is long and bitter.
This is like a very drinkable barley wine. It would be interesting to try this freshly brewed, so the hops can flourish more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a deep amber color with a mediumsized white head, minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma of toffee, honey, fruit candy, dried fruits and some plums. Flavour is fruity and malty sweet with clear toffee and honey notes together with some spicy hops. Medium bitterness in the finish. Mediumbodied on the palate, slightly oily and quite smooth, the carbonation is soft. A nice sipper, maybe not that complex but overall quite tasty and definitely priceworthy.
